The first time that the Minnesota territorial legislature assembled was in St. Paul during the winter of 1849. At the direction of Governor Ramsey, the Minnesota territory was divided into districts. By this time, white settlers were in what is now known as Rice County. A portion of what is now know as Rice County was eventually created by the territorial legislature on March 05, 1853.
